My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of the most high sovereign God, there is nothing like being a servant of the Lord. Some of the ways that I serve the Lord is this blog, but also the Journey In Praise Blog and Broadcast on periscope @WilhelminaLundy is the handle and if you don’t have periscope you can find me on FaceBook or YouTube @JourneyInPraise this is where I share the lessons that I may have learned while writing the blog, reading the word, or reading a book, maybe even a dream. What ever it is , it came from God. okay let’s get in to the word.
Ezekiel Chapter 5
The Lord tells Ezekiel to take a sharp sword, use it as a barber’s blade and shave his head and beard. He then says to Ezekiel, to take a set of scales and divide up the hair. When the day of the siege comes to an end, burn a third of the hair with fire in the city, and scatter a third to the wind. the Lord says that he will pursue them with drawn swords. He tells Ezekiel to take a few strands of hair and tuck them away in his garment, and take a few and throw them in to the fire and burn them up, the Lord says a fire will spread from there to the whole house of Israel.
my, my,my this has me wondering what next, The shaving of the head and beard is what was done at the end of a vow. Let’s move on.
This is what the Sovereign said This is Jerusalem which I have set in the center of the nations, with countries all around her, yet in her wickedness she has rebelled against my laws and decrees more than the countries around her. she has rejected my laws and not followed my decrees. this is the message Ezekiel is to give to Israel.
The Lord says I myself is against you Jerusalem, and I will inflect punishment on you insight of the nations. Because of all your Idols, I will do to you what I have never done before and will never do again. Therefor in your midst fathers will eat there children and children will eat their fathers. I will inflict punishment on you and scatter your survivors to the winds. As surely as I live declares the Lord because you have defiled my sanctuary with all your vile images and detestable practices, I myself will withdraw my favor; I will not look on you with pity or spare you. A third of your people will die of plague or perish by famine inside; a third will fall by the sword outside your walls; and a third I will scatter to the winds and pursue with drawn sword
I went back to Ezekiel 5:2:4 remember when he told Ezekiel to burn the hair the same amount of hair and the same things done the hair represented the people of Israel . lets keep going.
Then my anger will cease and my wrath against them will subside, and I will be avenged. And when I have spent my wrath against them they will know that I the Lord have spoken in my zeal.
I will make you a ruin and a reproach among nations around you, in the sight of all who pass by.you will be a reproach and a taunt, a warning and an object of horror
The Lords word continues to discribe that he will do to Israel I encourage you to read this chapter in the spirit . this chapter has made me appreciate that the punishment for Israel would be the first but most important the last. when I look at society now and how things are Idolized I am realizing that we are lucky that the Lord is not a man that he should lie. Because I’m sure he is P.O not very happy.
Now for the Important part, If you are looking for salvation google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and Confess with your mouth “Jesus is Lord” and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. Enjoy a wonderful relationship with the Sovereign Lord God Bless you
